Archived from groups: alt>comp>anti-virus (more info?)

I am using Windows XP Home Addition With AVG 6.0. I tried installing
the latest version of AVG 7.?? and get the following error message:

"Local machine: installation failed
Initialization:
Error: Checking of state of the item file avgctrl.dll failed.
File opening failed. %FILE% = "C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG
Free\avgctrl.dll"
Permission denied"

I cannot uninstall the AVG 6.0 version from either the control panel or
by AVG's Uninstall (even in Safe Mode). Both the install and uninstall
fail upon reaching the avgctrl.dll file.

Now I have no AVG virus protection.

Can Anyone Help!

Thanks,

DMD

Normally, AVG 7 uninstalls version 6 for you.
But if you want to uninstall version 6 your self, be sure to disable it first. If it is running in
the background, it is not going to let you uninstall it because it is in use.

Hi Richard:

Thanks for your help.

AVG was not in my system tray so I renamed the "Grisoft" directory to
"GrisoftOld."
This time the installation work without interruption.

Thanks again,

Dan

Richard, most do use ">" quoting markers. Some do use "|" quoting
markers. You use exotic ":" quoting markers. Imagine how irritating are
postings with a mixture of all!

> : | >> :: and so on

It would be a good idea if you would use normal quoting markers as most
people do for a better overview and reading especially over longer
threads. Thank you in advance for your kind understanding.

A: Because it disturbs the logical flow of the message
Q: Why is top posting frowned upon?

Peter. My computer came with the : reply option and I just never changed it. But I would not say

But if it make you happy, I have changed to the > option.

Bottom posting may seem logical to some, but to others, I want the answer right up front. Bottom
posting is a pain in the a--.
